    Thanks everyone for your comments. I put the eye in first (as that's the easy part )and worked around it. It helps me feel the personality of the animal. I nearly gave up on the fur and kept adding more layers - the more I added the better it became. It's very much trial and error for me.

    Is the background OK?

    This is beautiful. Clever doing the eye first. I've heard this is good in people portraiture too. Re the background, could be a little darker to add contrast? That's just a guess though because this is a wonderful painting

    Edit: When I scrolled, the painting background got darker so it's my monitor.

    Thank you both - guess you could say I like cats, big and small! I have been lucky enough to pat both cheetahs and tigers.
